I carry one of these all the time on the bike. From high end bike shop. It has a built in gage. A 21" tire takes 40 strokes, strike that, 40 pumps, wait not that either, 40 cycles to get from zero PSI to 20 PSI. And of course a XRL has a 21" wheel.

Well what I did was buy 2 sets. 1 XR250 and 1 cr250 to try out. THe XR250 ones just took a little filing. MSR from cyclegear. Now I want to do it with their trackside ones.

All the rain washes that oil down into the ruts that are the car tire tracks. The center of the lane is where I usually ride in the winter here. The traction is better there.
